Overview

Beidou (Chinese: 北斗 Běidǒu, "Big Dipper") is a playable Electro character in Genshin Impact.

She is the captain of The Crux, a renowned crew in Liyue. Besides her capabilities as a fleet captain and her immense strength, many in Liyue know her for her lack of fear towards the Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing, Ningguang — a trait that the other appreciates, yet grows irritated by.

Talent Tidecaller.pngTidecallerElemental Skill
Nothing to worry about. Should anyone raise a hand against her or her men, she will avenge it ten-fold with sword and thunder.

Press
Accumulating the power of lightning, Beidou swings her blade forward fiercely, dealing Electro DMG.

Hold
Lifts her weapon up as a shield. Max DMG absorbed scales off Beidou's Max HP.
Attacks using the energy stored within the greatsword upon release or once this ability's duration expires, dealing Electro DMG. DMG dealt scales with the number of times Beidou is attacked in the skill's duration. The greatest DMG Bonus will be attained once this effect is triggered twice.
The shield possesses the following properties:
  • Has 250% Electro DMG Absorption Efficiency.
  • Applies the Electro element to Beidou upon activation.
  • This skill generates 2 Elemental Particles when it hits at least 1 target, or up to 4 when it hits with energy stored.
  • The skill description is somewhat misleading. The Press skill has the same functionality as the Hold skill (including the shield and energy storing), but only during a very brief window.
  • After holding the skill for about 3 seconds, the attack will be released automatically.
  • If the shield breaks, the player will take the rest of the remaining damage used to break the shield.
  • The shield disappears upon release of the attack.
  • Pressing or holding the skill gains DMG bonus, a Poise damage bonus, swing range bonus, and generates one extra elemental particle for each hit Beidou takes during the duration. Maximum bonuses are granted at 2 hits, or a "perfect counter" with Passive Talent 1.
    • The hits can be from any damage instance, including fire damage from burning grass.
    • When pressing or holding the skill, there will be a bubble around the character that lasts for a fraction of a second. If the player gets hit in the time frame the bubble is still up, it gives the maximum damage for the skill (same as if Beidou was hit twice).
      • After triggering this perfect counter, the player can continue to hold it, but it will not increase the damage further when hit.
    • The perfect counter can be instantly activated by pressing this skill while standing in damage over time environments like burning grass, braziers, torches, or campfires.
    • A perfect counter will not negate all damage if the damage taken breaks the shield.
  • Beidou's Passive Talent 1, Retribution, affects Tidecaller as follows: "Counterattacking with Tidecaller at the precise moment when the character is hit grants the maximum DMG Bonus."
  • Beidou's Passive Talent 2, Lightning Storm, enhances Beidou's attacks for 10 seconds after unleashing Tidecaller with its maximum DMG Bonus as follows:
    • The DMG and Attack SPD of Beidou's Normal and Charged Attacks are increased by 15%.
    • The wind-up before Beidou begins Charged Attacks is reduced.
Constellation Effects
  • Constellation Level 3, Summoner of Storm: Increases this talent's level by 3 and raises its maximum level to 15.
Talent Levels past 10 require Elemental Skill Level Increase methods, such as Constellations and Event bonuses.

Visual for Tidecaller's different states

Talent Stormbreaker.pngStormbreakerElemental Burst
Recalling her slaying of the great beast Haishan, Beidou calls upon that monstrous strength and the lightning to create a Thunderbeast's Targe around herself, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents.

Thunderbeast's Targe
  • When Normal and Charged Attacks hit, they create a lightning discharge that can jump between opponents, dealing Electro DMG.
  • Increases the character's resistance to interruption, and decreases DMG taken.

A maximum of 1 lightning discharge can be triggered per second.

  • This talent's effects remain active if the player switches characters. This includes the shield created when Beidou has her 1st constellation, Sea Beast's Scourge.
  • The discharges can jump between enemies:
    • At C0: 2 jumps, 3 hits including the first target (for example, with 2 enemies A and B, it will jump A ➔ B ➔ A, dealing damage for a total of 3 times)
    • At C2: 4 jumps, 5 hits including the first target (for example, with 2 enemies A and B, it will jump A ➔ B ➔ A ➔ B ➔ A, dealing damage for a total of 5 times)
    • In order for the jumps to occur, there needs to be at least 2 enemies. If there is only one enemy, there will be no jump and the discharge will only do damage once.
  • Lightning DMG follows the default Internal Cooldown of 2.5 seconds/3 hits.
  • Lightning DMG will snapshot Beidou's stats on cast and will not be affected by changes in Beidou's stats that occur afterwards.
  • Lightning Discharge will still activate when hitting a shielded enemy.
  • The effect may be discharged by ranged weapons up to a certain distance if it hits a valid target. If the attack hits the target from too far away, the effect may not be discharged.
Constellation Effects
  • Constellation Level 1, Sea Beast's Scourge: Upon using Stormbreaker, a shield is created that absorbs up to 16% of Beidou's Max HP for 15 seconds. This shield is 250% more effective against Electro DMG.
  • Constellation Level 2, Upon the Turbulent Sea, the Thunder Arises: "Stormbreaker's arc lightning can jump to 2 additional targets." See above for more information.
  • Constellation Level 5, Crimson Tidewalker: Increases this talent's level by 3 and raises its maximum level to 15.
  • Constellation Level 6, Bane of Evil: "During the duration of Stormbreaker, the Electro RES of surrounding opponents is decreased by 15%."
Talent Levels past 10 require Elemental Burst Level Increase methods, such as Constellations and Event bonuses.
